Super Bowl MVP Joe Flacco is going to Disney World, but San Francisco 49ers linebacker Chris Culliver is heading to reeducation camp.
Culliver last week said he wouldn’t want to have any gay teammates. Then came what today is the inevitable: Public apology, sit-down with journalists, and volunteering to work at a pro-homosexuality charity—in this case, The Trevor Project.
(The Trevor Project is the leading national organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning youth. The Trevor Project is a Champion of Change, an honor presented by the White House for “innovative work to save the lives” of LGBTQ young people.)
Or do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God. (1 Corinthians 6:9–11, NIV)
Organizations like The Trevor Project might help to prevent suicide, but it does nothing to provide life. Christ Jesus said,
“I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in Me will never die. Do you believe this?” (John 11:25-26)
